FDGM, Inc. of Fincantieri Awarded Contract for Lockheed Martin Littoral Combat Ship
(Source: FDGM; issued Oct. 14, 2004)
 CHESAPEAKE, Va. --- FDGM, Inc., a U.S.-based, wholly owned subsidiary of Fincantieri of Italy, was selected to supply Isotta Fraschini-powered Ship Service Diesel Generators (SSDG) to the Lockheed Martin Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) team.  
FDGM, Inc. is the supplier of Isotta Fraschini diesel engines in North America. Owned by Fincantieri, Isotta Fraschini specializes in the design and manufacture of specialized, high technology, high powered/lightweight diesel engines particularly for niche markets, including the U.S. Navy, Italian Navy, and international navies, as well as most of today’s prominent cruise liners.  
LCS, a revolutionary naval combatant designed to dominate the world’s coastal waters, will provide the U.S. Navy with fast, maneuverable and shallow draft ships aimed at maximizing mission flexibility. The ship’s first missions will include mine warfare, anti-submarine warfare and surface warfare.  
The Lockheed Martin-led team includes naval architect Gibbs & Cox and ship builders Marinette Marine and Bollinger Shipyards. The team designed a low- risk, affordable solution that provides the Navy with a maneuverable, flexible, networked surface combatant. The Lockheed Martin team was awarded a contract for final design in May, and is scheduled to begin construction of the lead ship at Marinette Marine in Marinette, WI, in the first quarter of 2005.  
“It is an honor for FDGM to have been selected to supply a critical piece of equipment for the U.S. Navy’s warship of the future, and to be part of the distinguished Lockheed Martin team. We appreciate the continued confidence of the team and the Navy in our outstanding products and exemplary service,” said Upinder Kamal, FDGM Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President.  
“The strength of Fincantieri, FDGM, and Isotta Fraschini and our companies’ enduring commitment to the United States Navy will lead us, with our team members, well into the 21st century and beyond,” said Ing. Gian Piero Riganti, FDGM/Isotta Fraschini President. “Further, this relationship underscores the strong alliance between the United States and Italy,” he continued.  
“Lockheed Martin is committed to forming a team with best-of-industry technologies, to deliver the highest value and quality to the U.S. Navy in our LCS design,” said Carol Hulgus, vice president and general manager of Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors’ Littoral Ships & Systems line of business.  
Isotta-FDGM has full-service facilities and factory trained mechanics in Ingleside, TX, near the homeport of most of the Navy’s mine warfare ships; and in Sasebo, Japan, and in Manama, Bahrain, for mine counter-measure ships in the Pacific and Arabian Gulf theaters, respectively.

Lockheed Martin and EADS Cooperate on Naval Radars
(Source: Lockheed Martin, EADS; issued Oct. 27, 2004)
 LE BOURGET, France --- During the Euronaval exhibition in Paris today Lockheed Martin and EADS announced that the U.S. Navy’s Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) will be equipped with the EADS TRS-3D radar for air and sea surveillance and weapon assignment, and that the U.S. Coast Guard’s Maritime Security Cutter, Large (WMSL) will also be equipped with the EADS TRS-3D radar for air search.  
Further, both companies have agreed to evaluate opportunities for joint development, marketing and production of the TRS-3D in other shipbuilding programs worldwide.  
For LCS, EADS Defence Electronics, an integrated part of the EADS Defence and Security Systems Division, will provide one TRS-3D radar for each LCS ship, for a total of two radars for Flight 0. EADS will also provide two radars for the U.S. Coast Guard’s Integrated Deepwater System program – one for the first WMSL and one for the land-based test site, with an option for three more radars.  
At the outset of the U.S. Navy’s LCS program and the U.S. Coast Guard’s Deepwater program – which includes WMSL – the two services expressed their desire to maximize common systems that would expand interoperability and logistics support. In addition to improved interoperability, common systems can reduce total ownership costs through common training, spares, maintenance, and upgrades.  
“The TRS-3D will deliver the surveillance capability that is crucial to the missions these ships will perform,” said Fred P. Moosally, president of Lockheed Martin Maritime Systems & Sensors. “This radar provides mission capability and logistics efficiencies for both services, reflecting a whole systems approach that embraces the Coast Guard’s and Navy’s interoperability goals.”  
The TRS-3D radar was selected based on separate reviews and analysis by both programs of global radar offerings. In both instances, the TRS-3D offered the best overall performance and the lowest risk.  
“Preserving maritime security with a variety of different tasks and difficult environmental conditions affords highly capable sensors to ensure situational awareness at any time,” said Bernhard Gerwert, CEO and president of EADS Defence Electronics. “Our TRS-3D radar has proven operationally that it is the right answer to these complex demands.”  
The TRS-3D, developed and produced by EADS Defence Electronics, is a C-band, naval 3D multimode radar for air and sea surveillance and weapon assignment. It is deployed on the German F122 frigates and is being delivered for the K130 corvettes, as well as in operation on ships of several other navies, including Denmark, Finland, Malaysia and Spain.  
In different versions, the TRS-3D can serve as a stand-alone radar for the special requirements of smaller ships operating in littoral waters or as the main self-defence radar on frigates and larger ships. The TRS-3D is used for the automatic detection and tracking of all types of air and sea targets. With the latest signal processing technologies, it is especially suited for the early detection of low and fast moving objects, such as missiles, fast boats or unmanned aerial vehicles under severe environmental conditions. It has shown exceptional performance world-wide, including Operation Enduring Freedom, and especially in the very demanding littoral North Sea, Norwegian Sea and Fjord environments.  
Lockheed Martin is the prime contractor for the Navy’s LCS program. Lockheed Martin is also a joint venture partner with Northrop Grumman, forming Integrated Coast Guard Systems, under which it is responsible for the command, control, communications, computers, intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance components of the Coast Guard’s Deepwater program.  
LCS, a revolutionary naval combatant designed to dominate the world’s coastal waters, provides the Navy with fast, maneuverable and shallow draft ships aimed at maximizing mission flexibility. The Lockheed Martin LCS team is on schedule to complete Final Critical Design Review in December - the last program milestone before authorization of construction of the first LCS.  
The WMSL is a new and highly capable high-endurance cutter designed to satisfy the Coast Guard’s multi-mission responsibilities in homeland security, national defense, marine safety, and environmental protection. In addition to enabling the Coast Guard to fulfill its commitment to the National Fleet Policy, this class of cutters will play an important role in restoring the Coast Guard’s operational readiness, capacity, and effectiveness at a time when the demand for its services has never been higher. Construction of the first WMSL began in September at Northrop Grumman Ship Systems’ facility in Pascagoula, MS.  
EADS Defence Electronics is an integrated part of the EADS Defence and Security Systems Division (DS) and supplies radar, avionics and electronic warfare subsystems to armed and security forces worldwide. DS offers integrated systems solutions to the new challenges confronting armed and homeland security forces.  
ICGS is a joint venture of Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman. ICGS was awarded the Deepwater contract in June, 2002. Headquartered in Roslyn, VA, core leadership teams are also co-located in Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi, New Jersey, and Washington, DC.  
Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin employs about 130,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture and integration of advanced technology systems, products and services. The corporation reported 2003 sales of $31.8 billion.
